Santa Caterina Villarmosa – Church of the Immaculate Conception

Santa Caterina Villarmosa, CL, Italia
Chiesa a Santa Caterina Villarmosa - Chiesa Madre Immacolata Concezione

The Church in Santa Caterina Villarmosa dedicated to the Immaculate Conception is a typical example of rural architecture with simple and elegant lines.

It was built in 1717 and is the most important in Santa Caterina Villarmosa. What immediately strikes the visitor is the evocative white facade covered in 1879 with the characteristic stone from Syracuse, demonstrating that the inhabited center was then particularly rich thanks to the skilled and patient activity of embroiderers who produced precious crochet works and sought-after embroideries requested by Sicilian nobles from all over the island.
